Kids’ Countdown with Ida Barr

Part of Winter

Start your family’s New Year revels early at a daytime party with ex-music hall singer turned hip-hop goddess Ida Barr.

Ida’s celebration features sing-songs, dancing, tip-top hip-hop DJing, and communal joy. All ages can come and party hard, have a smashing time, count down to ‘midnight’ (12 noon) and still be in bed nice and early.

Ida Barr is the creation of Olivier-award-winning performer and theatre maker Christopher Green.

Ida regularly does a turn at Southbank Centre, creating anarchic merriment wherever she goes. She’s about to do it again. Don’t miss out.
